It’s improving the lives of people who bleed easily. Customers tell us that one of the most irritating things about having thin skin is the nuisance bleeding that occurs with the slightest bump, scratch or cut. Our powder solves that problem in seconds and allows people the freedom to control it and get back to their lives immediately . . . wherever they are!
It’s improving the lives of patients and the doctors and nurses that serve them. In the emergency room, our products control bleeding for non-suturable wounds. For vascular access teams, the powder seals access sites and provides a barrier. This has also allowed for fewer dressing changes, saving valuable nursing time and expensive wound dressing materials.
It’s improving the lives of workers and safety professionals in the workplace. Our Occupational First Aid users tout the benefits of the powder not just because it stops bleeding but because it saves them time and money by reducing down-time. It is a must-have for all first aid kits!
The powder is great for all ages, even kids!
Powder + Pressure = Instant Scab
WoundSeal/StatSeal powder is composed of a hydrophilic, or water-loving, polymer and potassium ferrate. When the powder is poured onto a bleeding wound, the hydrophilic polymer instantly dehydrates the blood by absorbing only the plasma or liquid portion of the blood stacking the blood solids beneath the powder. Simultaneously the potassium ferrate dissolves, releasing iron that agglomerates (binds together) the blood solids to create an occlusive seal.
As manual pressure is applied to the powder, the seal is pushed into contact with the wound. The natural glue-like nature of drying blood adheres the seal to the wound and surrounding skin. The occlusive seal, that has formed in seconds, stops further bleeding or oozing. Blood solids continue to stack beneath the seal, strengthening it. The natural clotting process proceeds below the seal.
